Press Shia – In an exclusive interview with Press Shia Agency News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Askar Dirbaz, the ‎representative of the people of West Azerbaijan province in the Assembly of Experts, said ‎that  one of the best ways to prevent extravagance among some officials and members of ‎parliament is the discussion of “transparency” and said, “This issue makes it such that the ‎officials are put under the pressure of public opinion and are more careful in their ‎behaviour.”‎

 

The head of the University of Qom continued, “Of course, it has to be mentioned that ‎‎‘transparency’ isn’t absolute transparency, but it must maintain exceptions in order to ‎separate this category of security information from that which the exposure of has costs for ‎the Islamic system of government.”‎

 

Hujjat al-Islam Dirbaz noted, “If we abandon the few exceptions of transparency, in the ‎transparency that will remain, many of the vices and tendencies will be modified into ‎extravagance. If people are aware of the outward appearance of the lives of their officials ‎and witness simple living among them, there is no doubt that they will be optimistic about ‎the system.”‎

 

He said that the officials must actualize and represent the goals of the Islamic Revolution ‎and the intentions of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Sayyed Ali ‎Khamenei] through their behaviour and added, “The Supreme Leader expressed his support ‎for Iranian manufactured commodities and if the people witness that the officials of this ‎country are using these kinds of goods, there is no doubt that in addition to being optimistic ‎about Iranian manufactured commodities and the behaviour of their officials, they will also ‎support Iranian manufactured commodities.”‎

 

Hujjat al-Islam Dirbaz added, “If transparency exists, when people witness the tendency ‎toward extravagance and luxury in the behaviour of their officials, they will have more ‎serious demands to make them correct their behaviour.”‎
